a strip of highway adjacent to my property has been sold to my neighbour under a bona vacantia transaction my solicitor has said that the land does not fall within the DN number that the dissolved company had title to. There is no evidense from the official register entries or the coloured filed plans applicable to the DN number that the land did fall within the title number. My solicitor has stated to the Treasury Solicitor that the land was conveyed in 1973 by virtue of ad medium fillum and vested in my title number, the neighbour now has it registered in their name How can land registry have registered the land to my neighbour when the official filed plans and official register entries do not show the land falling within the title of the Dissolved company
Yes that is correct for example DN327712 (this is only an example)
Yes that is correct my solicitor has stated from all the information and evidene we have that it was vested in my title in 19973 the land and our property was originally registered under the same parent title number being owned by the same person and our conveyance was a general conveyance in other words it did not state on our title deeds that the land (highway) was excluded
from our title our property was registered first prior to our neighbours the highway and our property are both annexed together behind a concrete retaining wall so of course the retaining wall would have been built first and then the highway would have been constructed
our neighbours ground level is well below our ground level and the highway level because the properties are built on a slope hope you understand my explanation the higway land has not been used since 1993
The company that owned the land originally also owned the land my property originated from as stated above all under the same DN number.
Not sure if you received my last reply!
The land is enclosed within my garden
